windows could not automatically detect this network's proxy

I'm not able to connect to my WiFI. It's showing some kind of yellow sign & coming up with this error "windows could not automatically detect this network's proxy settings".

Looking for a permanent solution as I already tried several online guides.

do you use a proxy server?

if not, then set windows to direct connect setting for internet. If this is browser related, do the same in the browser settings.
